How to Select the Best System for Your House?
In any typical home, water heating consumes a quarter of the energy used. Depending on the number of people, the energy consumption could go up drastically. One of the key things to look for when selecting a hot water system for your needs is a unit that not only saves you money and energy but is environmentally friendly.
So, what exactly should you consider when choosing a unit?
- Heating method
As mentioned earlier, there are different heating methods that you can consider when looking to install a hot water system. These include heat, electric, solar, gas, and pump. For these, you need to consider the availability and cost that comes with the method you choose.
The energy source you choose for your hot water needs affects the energy efficiency, size and annual operational costs of your unit.
- The size and water usage of your household
The best hot water system contractors will consider your household size and water usage before suggesting the type of system you can buy. This, of course, is key for us at Hewitt Trade Services to ensure that you get the best system for your household’s consumption.
In addition, getting the right size of the hot water system will ensure that you have enough hot water for the entire family.
Most families in Brisbane spend a ridiculous amount of money on their energy bills. This is usually caused by inefficient working systems in the homes like hot water systems and air conditioners. Getting a unit that is energy efficient can help save you save money.
When buying a hot water system, ensure that its energy consumption is low to save you on energy costs.
- Budget and running costs
Just like your home is an investment, so is every single purchase you make to ensure its comfy. When buying a hot water heat ensure that you don’t go overbudget unless there is a need. In this case, you should consult with your contractor and let them help you decide on the best option.
You also need to have a rough estimate of how much the servicing and maintenance will cost you on an annual basis and see if it’s worth the investment.
Do You Really Need a New Hot Water System?
More often than not, all your hot water system needs are repairs to get it to work properly and not a new one. Still, there comes a time when the repairs just won’t cut it, and it just might be time for you to get a new one.
How can you tell that all your hot water system needs is a fix and not a replacement? The below are signs that you can factor in when deciding whether your heater has come to the end of its life. If your hot water system is acting up, the below points should give you a good idea on what to do next.
- How old is your hot water system
The life expectancy of a hot water system is 8 – 12 years. If your system has surpassed that and has become inefficient, then it’s time to have it replaced.
- The water isn’t as hot as it’s supposed to be
If halfway bathing your water gets cold, then it’s time to have your system checked. Although this might be caused by a faulty thermostat in your hot water system, it’s still important to have it checked by an expert to ascertain whether it needs a simple fix or an entire system overhaul.
- A noisy, hot water system
A hissing sound from your hot water system could just be the sign needed to validate your unit’s last inefficiency. However, the sound could be caused by a flawed valve. Ensure you have a professional look at it.
- Rusted fittings
This is pretty easy to detect but not fix. If you realize your fittings are full of rust, it’s advisable to have a professional assess the extent of damage and advise on suitable options.
Fixing a hot water system isn’t as simple as most people think. When you notice the above signs on your hot water system give us a call, and we will be right there to have a look and advice on what to do.
